DR. R. C. COOK 



. July I, 1945, was Southern's great "Red Letter Day." 
At this time Dr. R. C. Cook became the fourth president 
of our college. Dr. Cook is always an affable gentleman 
who excels in progressive leadership, administrative dip- 
lomacy, and deep-rooted thinking. 

Our president is fortunate in having not one, but four 
dexterous right hands. His four deans constantly en- 
deavor to aid both in administrative and student affairs. 

Dr. R. A. McLemore, Dean of the College, familiarly 
known as Dr. "Mac," possesses the unusual ability to aid 
with all problems. His keen interest in all students and his 
sincere attitude of helpfulness have won for him our 
deepest admiration. 



Dr. W. H. Sumrall, Dean of Graduate Studies and the 
founder of our graduate division, is always available for 
counsel. His wisdom and his pleasing countenance have 
been inspirational to the students at Southern. 

Dr. R. G. Lowery, Dean of Men, is noted for his keen 
intellect, his wise counsel, and his abality to keep his boys 
out of trouble. His door is always open to both boys and 
girls. 

Mrs. Lena Y. Gough, Dean of Women, is ever friendly 
and courteous, understanding and helpful, and sincerely 
interested in promoting the social life of all students. 
Her tactful diplomacy and her gracious manner make her 
a favorite at Southern.

leaders 

Early in the fall the Cheerleaders were 
elected in Chapel and they took over their 
duties at the first game all dressed up in 
gold and black. The head cheerleader, Bill 
McKinney, kept the five gir! cheerleaders in 
line and together they kept the student body 
yelling for the team. 

The cheerleaders were awarded jackets 
this year for the first time. 

Next year we hope that we can have 
cheerleaders like these who can yell and be 
pretty at the same time.

AUBURN 20 

Father Time and a crippled Auburn halfback 
named Travis Tidwell erased any hopes the South- 
erners may have had for an undefeated season. 

Yet it was in typical "Southern" fashion that the 
Southerners, after trailing by a fourteen point mar- 
gin, came back to play the Plainsmen off their feet 
throughout the second period. The final play of the 
game ended up on the Auburn fourteen yard line, 
with but six points separating victory from defeat. 

Southern scoring duties were handled by ends 
Cliff Coggins and Glyn Slay, both on the receiving 
end of passes by Quarterback Vernon Wells. 

Other outstanding Southerners were Hindu Rey- 
nolds, Chuck Borde, Red Mangum and Fred Waters. 



SOUTHERN. . . . 
AUSTIN COLLEGE .

In a track meet-like affair the Southerners broke 
into the win column on their first outing at Faulkner 
Field. 

The Kangaroos of Austin College jumped once, 
and that time in amazement at Bubber Phillips who 
went seventy-nine yards for a touchdown the first 
time he carried the ball — after which the issue was 
never in doubt. 

Wells again passed to Coggins, Little Ed Lang- 
ford ran, Big Al Sanders blocked two punts, Frank 
Spruiell and Cal Butler took turns at intercepting 
Austin passes while Spot "the Shoe" Honaker added 
six P.A.T. in seven attempts to help divide the in- 
dividual honors.

TRINITY 26 

With the exception of the first five minutes in 
the third quarter when quarterback Maxie Lam- 
bright passed to Cliff Coggins for a touchdown, 
Trinity's Gerald (Dutch) Levermann and that well 
known opponent "Overconfidence" stole the show. 

The absence of halfback Bubber Phillips was felt 
for the second time this season and to this was 
given credit for the low spirit of the Southerners. 

Others outstanding even in defeat were Hindu 
Reynolds and Boots McCormick and Bennie Ray 
Nobles. Nobles' punting kept the Southerners in 
the ball game with an eighty yard quick-kick going 
as his best effort. 



Top: Who's got the ball? 
Above: Bennie Ray bites off more yardage. 



SOUTHERN 26 

S. L I. . 6 

Taking on the role of a villain, the Southerners 
snapped a three game win streak of the Bulldogs. 

Coach Green used twenty-nine players in an 
effort to keep the score down while Bill Stewart 
and Sonny Carr, both of McComb, proved their 
worth as ball carriers and the already recognized 
value of Bubber Phillips shown even brighter in the 
offensive department. Boots McCormick played a 
stellar game at left end and was a constant thorn 
in the Institute backfield. 

In topping off the show, Freshman center Jack 
Jenevein proved that the scoring isn't to be limited 
to the backfield by intercepting a pass on the SLI 
fifteen and going all the way.

O. C. U 20 

For the second time in three years, in what Coach 
Reed Green called his dream game — when every- 
thing we did seemed to go just right, the Southern- 
ers scalped the Oklahoma City University's Chiefs 
when they were on the brink of an undefeated sea- 
son. They not only handed the Chiefs a beating, 
but in running up a 55-20 score, set a new mark in 
post-war scoring against the "Okie" school. 

Highlighted by the three touchdowns-runs of 
Dick "Bubber" Strain, the splendid passing of Maxie 
Lambright and Zipper Welis, which accounted for 
four more six-pointers, the Southerners took the lead 
after three minutes of play and never relinguished it.

Led by a strike of lightning named Morris 
Brown and a series of buzz bombs who answer to 
the roll call as Frank Spruiell, Bubber Phillips, Jim 
Owen and Bennie Ray Nobles, the Southerners 
racked up nineteen points in the first nine minutes 
of play and then coasted the rest of the way. 

Line play against the Demons was perhaps the 
best of the season with such old dependables as 
Al Sanders, Red Mangum, Sonny Jordan, Cliff Cog- 
gins, Hindu Reynolds, Doug Taylor and Chuck 
Borde showing the way. 

Northwestern threatened once in the second half 
when they tallied twice to close the gap to a twelve 
pint margin, 26-14, but their rally was shortlived.

Although unable to stem the powerful Crimson 
Tide the Southerners lost no face in that battle with 
a Southeastern Conference team which gave all of 
its opponents a good run for their money. 

The Southerners played 'Bama pretty close on 
the ground but were unable to get their normally 
good aerial game underway. First downs were in 
Southerns favor by a fifteen to twelve margin while 
Alabama led in total offense collecting 198 yards 
to I 89 for the Southerners. 

Fog'ights in this battle with a typhoon were Frank 
Spruiell, Bennie Ray Nobles, the Brown brothers, 
Papa Frank and Uncle Morris, Chuck Borde, and 
Red Mangum.

Assuring themselves of at least second place in 
the Gulf States Conference final standings, the 
Southerners completed another successful Home- 
coming festivity. 

Sparked by the brilliant defensive play of full- 
back Bill Stewart and guard Red Mangum along 
with the standout offensive efforts turned in by 
Bennie Ray Nobles, Frank Spruiell and Bubber 
Phillips the Southerners scored the first time they 
gained possession of the ball and led throughout 
the fray. 

The expected duel between Bubber Phillips and 
Tech's Jimmy Harrison, waging a battle for the 
ground-gaining leadership of the conference, failed 
to materialize and it was the Bulldogs' concentra- 
tion on Bubber that enabled the Southerners to 
shake loose Spruiell, Nobles and the Brown brothers 
on repeated occasions.

Paced by the briiliant line play of Alt. Capt. Red

Bubber Phillips, who took the opening kickoff some 
four yards inside his own end zone and wormed his 
way through the entire Lion eleven to score, Frank 
Spruiell, Bill Stewart, Bennie Ray Nobles, Vernon 
Wells and Maxie Lambright helped lead the Souther- 
ners into the record books as champions of the newly 
formed Gulf States Conference. 

This title clincher gave the Southerners their 
second straight undefeated season in conference 
competition.

Everybody else had gone home for Thanksgiving 
except the team, coaching staff, and the managers, 
but they too were ready to leave at the half in what 
turned out to be a signal drill for those unsung 
heroes of the gridiron — the meatballs. 

Having compiled a season's record of seven wins 
and three losses saw a number of the Southerners 
taking a final curtain call on Faulkner Field. And 
they really made a nice show of it in this last game. 
Even the second and parts of the third string had 
already gone to the showers and were back watch- 
ing the game from the stands before the fourth 
guarter was well under way. It might be interesting 
to note that the crowd cheered lounder and longer 
for Union's lone T.D. than they did for anything 
else that night.

In the second year of baseball since 1933 Southern's 
baseball team made a fair showing under the coaching of 
Pie Vann. The team played 23 games and came out win- 
ner in I 2 of them. 

The leading batter for the season was Fred Waters, 
who sliced into 30 hits out of 75 times up to bat, ringing 
up three doubles, three triples, and one home-run. Dur- 
ing the season Fred batted in 17 runs and scored 19 
runs and ended up the season with a .400 batting average. 
Runners-up on batting averages were Ed Langford with 
.382 and Bubber Phillips with .364. 

The baseball team lost some of its better men at the 
end of the season to professional baseball teams but 
should field an egually good team this year.

The tennis team was made up of Armand Prentiss, Jim Pace, Ed

This year the tennis team has more matches scheduled with

the hall of fame 



BILL DUKES 

Bill is our Student Government President and 
is a hard worker in everything that he does. He 
is married and he can be found working for Mr. 
Eubanks when he isn't in class or busy getting 
things done for the Student Govt, or one of 
the other organizations to which he belongs. Bill 
is an honor roll student whose ambition right now 
is to become a lawyer. Bill is also one of the 
group that re-activated Pi Tau, the men's Honor- 
ary Activity Fraternity. 



ANNIE RUTH ERVIN 

Annie Ruth is a Hattiesburg girl and is one of the 
most active girls on the campus. She's president 
of the Pan-Hellenic Council, president of her 
sorority and president of the Modern Language 
Club. In carrying out the duties of her many 
offices she has made herself a familiar personality 
to practically everyone on the campus. Annie 
Ruth graduates this year with a major in French. 



DOUGLAS HARPER 

Doug is the big man you see everywhere on the 
campus who has a smile that's just about as big 
as he is. He is from Hattiesburg and is major- 
ing in English. Doug plans to be a minister when 
he graduates. He is First Vice-President of the 
Student Body and president of Pi Tau. He has 
made quite a name for himself by piling up the 
highest quality point average ever made here at 
Southern. 



HARRY TAYLOR 

You might not know his name but if he gets to 
talk to you for five minutes you'll find out what 
it is. He's the short fat fellow whom everybody 
calls "Tex." And he is from Texas, Pittsburg 
that is. He's the editor of this annual and vice- 
president of the Modern Language Club. He's 
historian of Pi Tau, reporter for Sigma Zeta, and 
a member of the Band. In the two years that he's 
been on the campus "Tex" has managed to get 
into about as many organizations as a student can 
join. He's also a charter member of Alpha Psi 
Omega, the honorary dramatics fraternity. For 
the record he's majoring in Journalism.

PAUL GRADY 

Business Manager. 



One bright and sunny morning last spring 
"Tex" Taylor woke up and was told that he was 
to be the editor of the '49 Southerner. It was 
a great shock but he lived over it and this fall he 
started looking the campus over for people to 
do the work on the annual for him. Well he found 
the oeople and the work got done. The '49 
Southerner belongs to the students and without 



their co-operation and work me book just 
wouldn't be. 

The members of the staff are proud of the '49 
Southerner and hope that the Student Body is 
pleased too. It is the wish of the staff that the 
Southerner will continue to grow and that the '50 
Southerner is an even better book.

The 1948-1949 edition of our marching and concert 
bands was considered to be the finest in the history of 
our college. 

The football band made three trips with the team and 
had the honor of representing Vanderbilt at the Vandy- 
'Bama game opening Ladd Memorial Stadium in Mobile, 
Alabama. 

Much credit for our success must be given to the un- 



tiring efforts of our very excellent drum major, Bob Kings- 
berry, and his fine corps of twirlers. 

The Symphonic band made its debut in a very accept- 
able chapel program on February 28. Our "tour" of 
coast towns was very successful, and our second Annual 
Concert for Fine Arts Week was one of the year's out- 
standing performances. The Symphonic band was under 
the capable leadership of Mr. Gilbert T. Saetre.

The Madragallians is a mixed ensemble of six girls and 
six boys who perform music of the style of the old English 
madragals. The Madragallians were organized in 1945 



and were then called the Troubadors. In 1946 the group 
was enlarged from eight to twelve. The Madragallians 
are under the direction of Mrs. Betty Jean Davis.

Alpha Delta Mu was formed in 1947 as a local 
social fraternity. It is a small, but select group 
which promotes scholarship and fellowship. 
Members are accepted on individual merit, ir- 
respective of creed, and the organization is free 
of dogma. 

Alpha Delta Mu Fraternity proposed and was 
instrumental in forming the Inter-Fraternity 
Council. It has the highest scholastic rating of 
any social fraternity on the campus. It has receiv- 
ed bids f r om five national fraternities, but is not 
yet affiliated with any national organization. 

In the recent Homecoming Parade, Alpha 
Delta Mu sponsored a Sadie Hawkins Day float 
which received honorable mention. 

Sponsors are Dr. Fortune, Dr. Walker and Mr. 
Jones. 

Colors are Green and White. The flower is 
the Magnolia.

Long years ago on September 23, 1914, Alpha Chapter of Delta 
Sig was born at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. The first thirty 
years showed forty chapters in leading colleges throughout the 
United States. 

The past year has seen one gala affair after the other. This 
summer the Dixie Conclave was held at Biloxi, Mississippi, and 
Southern's chapter was hostess to approximately 300 girls from all 
over the country. Moonlight cruises, seafood jambories, banquets, 
dancing, and swimming were enjoyed. Seventeen from Southern's 
Alpha Kappa chapter were present for the conclave. 

Rush week brought many new pledges both to work and enter- 
tain. This means lots of activities such as hayrides, progressive 
and tpagetti suppers, coke parties and coffee hours. Delta Sigs 
were also hostesses at a supper for a sister chapter from South- 
eastern Louisiana this past fall. 

The Delta Sigs proudly boast of having this years Miss M.S.C., 
Mary Elaine Holliday, as a member of their sorority. Co-Sponsors 
of the sorority are Mrs. Mary Jo Magee and Mrs. W. W. Stout.
